Job Ready Program


August 3

August 3


ACSA has adapted one of its established employment pathway programs into a blended on-line program and is pleased to make this new program available to anyone across Australia who is seeking a rewarding career and sustainable employment in one of the largest employing industries in the country. We are currently taking Expressions of Interest from interested participants and will deliver the first program from Monday 18 May, 2020, with rolling intakes every two weeks.

The program is delivered through a series of facilitated on-line Zoom sessions as well as some self-paced on-line modules delivered by specialist organisations, including the Department of Health and Dementia Training Australia. The benefits of facilitated on-line sessions allows participants to ask questions and interact with other learners. The program requires approximately a 20 hour commitment for the completion of the Essential Skills Modules plus one specialist area. There is a short assessment for each module to demonstrate successful completion of the program.

The program has a series of Essential Skills Modules for any worker in the sector and include:

  • Introduction to Aged Care Services in Australia
  • Aged Care Quality Standards and Person Centred Care
  • Workplace, Health & Safety including Infection Control and Hazardous Manual Tasks
  • Communicating with Older People and Colleagues
  • Basic Documentation
  • Understanding Dementia

  • Introduction to Safe Food Handling
Hospitality and Domestic Assistance Work

  • Advanced Safe Food Handling
  • Catering Service Skills
  • Cleaning and Laundry Skills


Direct Care and Support Work

  • Professional Boundaries and Self-Awareness
  • Nutrition and Hydration

This program will meet activity requirements for Job Active Participants and may also suit those who previously worked in the retail, hospitality or aviation industries.
